Can existing custom owners of the Roxanne send their units back to be upgraded to the 4th order crossover?

I think the new Moon-Audio designed and manufactured cables are a much more notable improvement, as the weight and torque on that right angled design was really bad for the 2.5mm TRRS balanced port for AK DAPs.

Rosie sounds like JH13 with adjustable bass. Nice.

But the $200 price increase for the rest of the line is not so nice. Might as well go for customs.


That is because they come with t.wo pairs of moon Audio cables each costing $200

Not true - cable on their website is actually not the stock one.

"Just to clarify. JH Audio's stock cables are not our dragon cables. They are stock cables that we designed, created and customized for them but they are a vast improvement over their previous ones & should have good durability.

Our dragon cables are the premium upgrade for your JH Audio 4 pin style iem's "Roxanne, Layla & Angie" for now. More models will fit this at some point in the future."

Sorry for the mistake. I stand corrected.

Well then...... JH Audio. No idea what the price increase is about.

Very true... I plan to order 1 of each for my layla. So are you planning to upgrade from the to the new Layla?

Doubt it, as I am more interested in the Beyerdynamic T8iE or Noble Audio Savant.  Heck, the aluminum version of their K10U will better serve 95% of people whom are looking for TOTL IEMs, plus it is much cheaper too (relatively speaking.)  You really need to get the custom version of the Layla for actual daily use, as the universal version is just really too big for the fit, which makes the new design moot.  However, if you do happen to have any of the newer JH IEMs and looking for a cable upgrade, I think the new stock cables from Moon-Audio is perfect (custom cable prices from Toxic or Beat Audio are still pretty insane.)
